It offers tax-advantaged savings accounts that can be used to pay for qualified disability expenses. The plan allows individuals to save and invest funds over time, with earnings on investments accumulating tax-free. The NH ABLE Plan aims to provide individuals with disabilities greater financial independence and flexibility in managing their expenses while maintaining their eligibility for important government assistance programs.
